Fantastic series of Modern Fairytales! Awesome!

J. H. Sweet ...
What a treat ...
Writing about fairies,
she can't be beat.

Book one was pure delight;
Book two is "out of sight."

Book three is a kid's dream,
Book four will make them beam.

But wait till you see what's in store;
of fairy books, she has plenty more.

Each of this author's books stands alone as far as story-line, and I discovered something new about fairies and fairy lore in each one. She's a fine writer, so good at her craft that the fairies practically fly off the pages, straight into your heart. Interesting story-lines, contemporary children, colorful characters in an exciting, entertaining format.

I have this entire series, including the first few that were published by another publisher...which are collector's items now. I'm always pleased to find the latest "fairies" flying around in my mailbox after ordering the latest release from Amazon.

I'm saving these special books for great-great-granddaughter Melissa, including this latest, Snapdragon and the Odyssey of Élan (Fairy Chronicles). Highly recommended. Grab 'em while you can.

About this book


Inside you is the power to do anything

If a dragon decides to be peaceful, who will look out for it? Why, fairies of course!

Élan is a peaceful dragon. But in order to become an adult, he must make a dangerous journey to find a beautiful jewel for Queen Elektra, the leader of the dragons. How will a very nice dragon get past the four fearsome monsters that guard the jewel?

Well, it always helps to have fairy friends, and Snapdragon will lead a team to help the young dragon become an adult without hurting even a single monster!
